Galaxy Note 7's iris scanner won't play nice with glasses

The big rumour circulating about the Galaxy Note 7 is that it will feature an iris scanner. But apparently those who wear glasses or contact lenses may not want to get too excited about this feature.

A breakdown from TechTastic says that the phone seems to give a warning that the iris scanning feature may not work on people who wear glasses. Meanwhile, those with contact lenses may not be able to use it in a low-light setting.

For everyone else, there’s a sweet spot to hold the device to get the iris scanner to work. Holding your phone any closer than 20cm from your eyes will most likely result in an error. It’s advised that you hold it between 25cm and 35cm away.

Other rumours about the Note 7 have suggested that it would come with 6GB RAM. However, a screen grab shows that the device will only have 4GB; that’s still more than enough to handle any task, but less than might have been expected.

It’s worth bearing in mind that these are just rumours and things could change ahead of the Note 7’s announcement on August 2.
